The New Magnusson blower install on the jeep is finished. As we were involved in the pre-production run of this kit it took a bit longer and required a fair amount more back and forth with Magnuson to provide feedback and install experience during the kits installation then a “normal” install time. But as with almost any forced induction kit, the results are very worth it.
With the supercharger up and running, spinning the big 39″ tires is doable. The 3.6 engine is way better than the older 3.8, but even after changing gear ratio’s, the big tires really suck up the power. The supercharger at 6 pounds cures all that.
All of the components pretty much fit as they were supposed to, again as this is a pre-production kit, there were a few things that had to be modified, but in all the kit is very close to release ready. One thing to keep in mind, as the jeep is one of the most modified rigs on the road, some compound modification may be needed to work around winch bumpers, skid plates, lights, air pumps, and a lot of the other common off-road accessories.
